Congratulations to Maria Gourley in 4G for her winning photo entry in the Chevron Focus Environment Competition.
Maria placed 3rd in the Years 3-6 category Focus on: WA’s habitats and ecosystems.
There were more than 100 entries from schools across WA. Both Year 4 classes entered the competition this year. Mrs Cogger took the students to the school bushland in Term 3 after giving the students a presentation about photography and how to capture a ‘good’ photo.
Maria’s photo will appear in The West Australian newspaper this week. Mrs Cogger’s father gets the newspaper each day and he has been alerted to look out for it!
Maria receives a $100 gift card and a certificate and St Emilie’s school has received $250. Mrs Cogger will add this money to her Science budget.
Here is Maria’s wining photo and caption.
